load file, skip comment lines

I'm using the load(filename) command to load some USGS data.  What I want to
know is, how do I make it skip the leading comment lines in the data file? 
Specifically, the syntax I am using is:

x = load(filename);
A = x(:,1);
B = x(:,2);
C = x(:,3);

etc.  So if the first several lines are comment lines, how can I tell it to
ignore those lines before beginning to load data?  Is there a better way to
do that?
